The Ramparts are an all-male Dublin based a cappella group set up in February 2016. Dubbed as ‘old school meets new school’ these guys were inspired by the likes of Westminster Chorus from the USA and Swedish group, Zero 8. Armed with their trusty dickie bows, braces and a pitch-pipe, they love to sing Barbershop, Pop, Traditional Irish, Folk, and Classical.
The Ramparts have approximately 25 members and rehearse every Wednesday evening from 7.00 to 9.30pm in Dublin City Centre. They have performed on BBC, TV 3, The Joe Show, Liveline, Electric Picnic as well as at private corporates, charity events, their own shows and in June 2018 did a 7 day tour of Marbella singing at 6 different venues.
